As a community based non-profit organization, the Center for Out-Of-Court Divorce provides services for a wide variety of families with children, including families with same-sex parents or never-married couples seeking co-parenting assistance. Our service model requires that both parents consent to work together and engage equally in the process.
The Center for Out-Of-Court Divorce customizes our services in order to meet our families where they are in the process of separation or divorce. Our comprehensive transition support program is for couples ready to develop and initiate plans for their family’s transition.
The support group was an incredibly positive experience for both of them, and they definitely felt safe and loved. They looked forward to going every time, there was never a fight, and they were so bummed for it to come to an end. They called it their club, and they really, really liked the gals who lead it.
We have taken several opportunities to bring up the topic of divorce intentionally since they started the support group, and they seem to be at least willing to stay in conversation about this more than they had previously; it was not uncommon for them to just say “I don’t want to talk about it” before, but I find that now they are much more willing to have a conversation and name their feelings.
I feel like this Center made an emotionally charged experience less difficult. The help and guidance of the Administrative staff, Social Workers, Psychologists, Financial expert and Attorney was extremely helpful in negotiating the process of divorce without acrimony. This center was significantly less expensive then the traditional route thru divorce when there are children and assets involved.
